"Climate change is a fact," Obama said last night, in a slight jab at skeptical Republican Congress members (and some Democrats, for that matter). Obama said that last year, the US cut carbon pollution more than any other country, and that to continue those efforts, he'll continue using executive measures. He said he'll order federal agencies to set new fuel efficiency standards for trucks, which will lower emissions and reduce oil consumption.
